Folville Junior School Success at Schools Sports Partnership Awards

November saw Leicester Schools Sport Partnership hold its annual awards to celebrate the exceptional hard work and excellent performances of Leicester’s young people over the past academic year.

Leicester West has produced another victorious team, with Folville Junior School winning the Primary Team of the Year as well as Luqman Said from Folville winning Sports Personality of the Year.

I am deeply concerned that the Tory/LibDem Government wants to remove funding from Leicester’s School Sports Partnership, which has helped over 2,500 more students take part in school sports in the last few years alone. Over half a million people nationwide signed a petition to call on the Government to change its mind. Under huge pressure, the Prime Minister recently told the House of Commons that the Government will look again at the issue.

Having seen at firsthand the impact that Leicester’s School Sports Partnership is having on raising the aspirations and the health of young people in Leicester west, I will continue to do all I can to make sure this vital funding stays in place.
